DESERT MISSION
Desert Mission Food Bank offers help to the hungry and those in need of nutritional support. TCF is helping fund the Food Bank Snack Program. Many needy kids get a free or a reduced lunch at school, but on the weekends they are on their own. That often means they won't eat again until Monday morning. The Snack Pack is filled with fruit, tuna, protein bars and juice -- enough to get them through the weekend.
